Energy

A quiet anxiety

creeps in and

invades every

cell of my body.

I keep my face

placid,

projecting

nothing.

I can't let

those around

me, see me

as I fall

and fade

away from

who I am.

It's building,

the fear,

the doubt.

the uncontrollabe

urge to bolt,

to run, run

as fast

as I can

away from this

painful and

unhappy life.

I look frantically

for my release,

for my mind to

analyze the

irrational

beliefs

wrapped up in

my anxious

energy.

It is exhausting

and I know

unrealistic,

but my mind

keeps flashing

the images

of all my

failures,

their words

written across

the brick wall

that surrounds

my heart.

This anxiety

eats at me

  • Sorry wish all the talent and energy you have in writing could enter into you physically x

  • Me too! I hate the pills they give me for anxiety,(ativan) because it just wipes me out physically and emotionally, which means I lose precious time from my life.

  • Silence....... and

    take a while

    let a smile

    catch your face

    hold your grace

    Don't close the gate

    This is not fate

    But your life

    So let in light

    Beat the grey

    today

    your way

    bold

    not told

    in a while

    in your style

    warmth will come

    and its begun

    a gentle peace

    with soft release

    let it run

    through your head

    and so its said

    we are a long way dead

    you and I

    we touch the sky

  • You've done it again lady! Expressed in a way only you can do. Keep the inspiration coming. If only I could do something to elevate your pain as you do mine,

  • You have alot of fans. When my wife, daughter and I were on our road trip to New Orleans this month my wife said "Isn't Jupiter Jane from Missouri?".

  • Ha,Ha! Next time your on a road trip let me know, I'll give you my # and address and you all can stop for a visit!

  • Uplifting thoughts.

  • Didn't know I had "anxiety" until my neuro asked me. I thought it was normal to be a worry wart. Thanks to my Buddhist practice I was a happier worry wart. PD forced me to face the anxiety and deal with it . i didn't like the effect of Xanax either. Made me NOT feel. Now i'm off it 2 months and I love, cry, almost like a "normal' person. :D
